Film preview: 'The Peanut Butter Falcon'

Part mismatched buddy comedy and part road trip movie, "The Peanut Butter Falcon" aims to be a feel-good film. We follow Zak and Tyler’s episodic adventure as the “two bandits on the run” drift wherever the river may take them and encounter various oddball characters along the way.

 

Film review: 'Honeyland'

Offering an intimate portrait of a life lived in harmony with the natural world, the film follows Hatidze Muratova, the last in a long line of Macedonia’s nomadic beekeepers, living isolated in the mountainous region deep within the Balkans.

Film preview: 'Good Boys'

There’s frat house drug deals, death-defying sprints across the highway, and annoyingly knowledgeable kid sisters. It’s an awful lot to handle for middle schoolers already navigating the hormone-addled world of 6th grade.

Film review: 'Maiden'

The gripping documentary recounts the story of 24-year-old Tracy Edwards and her dream of leading the first all-female crew to sail the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race. It offers an inspiring look at an unsung trailblazer in the fight against sexism in the world of sports.

Film preview: 'Them That Follow'

There’s a fine line between making an attempt to truly understand what drives the behavior of religious subcultures, and simply using it as an excuse to gawk in horror. And while “Them That Follow” doesn’t always keep to the right side of that line, it remains a compelling story about the clash between spirituality and the messiness of life.

Film preview: 'The Farewell'

Loss in translation
Exploring the complexities of cultural identity, "The Farewell" circulates with grief, love, regret, and guilt. It tells a warm, heartfelt, and often funny story about the bonds of family and the ways we work to stretch them as far as we can; across continents if we have to.

Film: reflecting on Rutger Hauer's work

Dutch actor Rutger Hauer passed away in his Netherlands home on July 19 at the age of 75. With a prolific and versatile career, Hauer was an actor with the unique ability to make a movie better simply by being in it. He mastered the art of delivering legitimately great performances in even the schlockiest of films.

Film review: 'Crawl'

It's a film with little on its mind besides pure excitement, and you could probably read some minor commentary about the climate and global warming’s effect on severe weather events that force animals to find new hunting grounds. But that’s not really the focus here.
